Harris re-signed with the Jets on a three-year, $21.5 million contract, Manish Mehta of the NY Daily News reports.

The 31-year-old linebacker has spent his entire career with one team, playing all 16 games in seven of his first eight seasons. He recorded either 123 or 124 tackles in each of the past three years, making him one of the NFL's more reliable IDP options. He's also one of the league's better pass rusher at his position, with 30.5 career sacks to his name, including 6.0 last season. Harris is the unquestioned leader of the New York defense, if not the entire team.

Harris will undergo an MRI on Monday to determine the extent of a shoulder injury he suffered during the fourth quarter of Sunday's loss to the Chargers, ESPN New York reports.

ILB David Harris expects the Jets to blitz more in 2013.

"There should be a different brand of football than you were used to seeing the last couple of years," Harris said. The Jets sent five or more rushers just 34 percent of the time last season, down from 52.4 percent and 44.7 percent, respectively, in their stellar 2009 and 2010 campaigns. Coach Rex Ryan is reasserting his control over the defense after former DC Mike Pettine accepted the same job with Buffalo. Ultimately, the success of the Jets' revamped secondary will determine how much they can get after the quarterback.

ESPN New York passes along "rumblings" that the Jets will use more 4-3 fronts in 2013.

Quinton Coples would play left defensive end with Muhammad Wilkerson and Sione Pouha at defensive tackle. They'd obviously need an edge rusher to bring heat off the weak side. The scheme change could help David Harris' IDP value, as he'd play middle linebacker. Demario Davis would be the weak-side starter.
